    Default And so it begins.....

    As you may guess from this thread, I am quite into my car audio systems. I am a newbie still but am on my fourth install from the age of 17 and have learnt a lot on my way!

    So the vectra install begins...

    And so it begins....

    First off, the car:



    Now the equipment going in

    Source = Alpine IDA-X001



    Processor = The very sexy Phoenix Gold EQ215x



    Going into my amps which are:

    DLS A4 (love this amp!)





    and the Burning Desire II - I would ideally like something more along the lines of a Solid or the Powerbass but funds don't really allow
    But to be fair, this amp hasn't let me down yet! (touch wood)

    Speaker will be the gorgeous Oz Matrix Elite Comps (6.5")



    Close up of Mid


    Crossover


    Thats the equipment I have for now, soon I should have 4 12" SPLD subs in a mahoosive box courtesy of Samuelellis


    Not done much so far but I have ran the 0awg which proved to be a bihatch once again!





    Heres where the 0awg is going through the the engine bay, a nice big grommet behind the glovebox (which came out very easily)

    I would like to ask a question to all those who have fitted a system into a veccy c.

    When you have run the wires down the car, where did you pass them through to the head unit, it looks VERY tight!

    Can they go here:



    edit

    Heres what will be going in the boot, all going to plan



    Without the powerbass amp

    To get up to the rear of the h/unit go from the g/box side and if needed you can remove part of the original plastic box it sits in,loads of space that way.

    Where you have indicated is where I ran my speaker wires, then over the guard above the pedals.

    How did you get to the back of the head unit from there? I've been trying for the past hour or so!

    I fed them down the very outer gap behind the stereo to that particular side (hard to describe without a pic), then jammed my fingers up from the outside (per your pic) and pulled them through.
